Many patients who visit Dr. Geroulis at his outpatient surgical facility, North Shore Center for Facial Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, inquire about the ideal time of year to undergo a cosmetic surgical procedure, such as a forehead lift or facelift procedure. Chicago-based, board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Anthony Geroulis believes there are a couple of correct answers to this question, and they all come down to one thing: lifestyle. Undergoing a surgical procedure, such as a rhinoplasty surgery in Chicago, can be a big undertaking. It takes careful planning on the part of both the surgeon and the patient.
The main factor involved in deciding when to undergo a cosmetic procedure, such as lower eyelid surgery, is recovery time. Depending upon the procedure, the length of recovery time varies. For example, the healing process associated with a rhinoplasty procedure or facelift surgery in Chicago is longer than that of an upper or lower eyelid procedure. Chicago-based surgeon Dr. Geroulis and his highly trained staff discuss the healing process with the patient in great detail during the pre-surgical appointment. Most patients choose to take a series of supplements that help to prevent bruising and speed up the recovery time.
